Setting Your Own Goals

Napoleon Hill once said that “a goal is a dream with a deadline” and I couldn’t agree more. Even if you go into your fitness plan with the best intentions, it’s still essential to set daily, weekly and monthly goals to maintain consistency and keep improving.

The Fat Loss Formula

Your body is only as good as you make it – you get out what you put in and that’s why calories and energy balance are so important when your goal is to achieve fat loss. Every individual has their own ideal daily calorie intake to help lose weight and fat.

Better Sleep = Better Results

Rest is a fundamental training principle that will boost your results through the roof. Exercise makes you stronger in the long run but you need enough recovery time, including good sleep quality, to make you fitter and stronger.

What Makes a Meal Plan Sustainable?

Forget juice diets, cutting out carbs and other fads. Today I want to talk about how to create an intelligent and sustainable meal plan to support your ongoing health and fitness goals.

My Top 10 Training Tips

It’s important to set your goal at the outset and keep striving towards it. Whether that be losing a certain amount of weight, toning up all over or gaining muscle, you must define the goal in order to have a clear target to work towards. If you keep on moving the goalposts, it may have a detrimental effect on your motivation. Once you reach your goals, then you can enjoy that sense of achievement and set the next goal even higher.

Can I Target Fat in Certain Areas?

This is one of the most common questions that my clients ask me. Many people feel self-conscious and believe that a certain part of their body is too flabby, particularly following childbirth or a long period without any exercise.

Changing Your Lifestyle

Introducing training and nutrition into your lifestyle can be tricky, which is why you need to fit your health and fitness around your life and not the other way around. Making as natural a transition as possible into a healthy life is important; once you’re on the right road, there’s no looking back. Why? Because if you want to live a healthy and happy life, then exercise and healthy eating are an essential part of your routine.
